About the event

It’s Christmas Eve, and Robin the Postman is on his last round of the day. It’s snowing hard, he loses his way and keeps dropping his parcels. Taking shelter in a funny old building, he meets some surprising new friends. Can they help him deliver the last few presents and find a way to the small boy, the old shoemaker and the brave little robin?

Join storyteller, actor and musician Robin Hemmings for this heart-warming bagful of story and songs, and find out what the special gifts are that you can give away, and keep!

Snow and Tell features charming adaptations of three much-loved tales: The Elves and the Shoemaker, How the Robin Got His Red Breast and Dickens’ Christmas Carol.

Watch our Christmas video to hear one of the songs from the show. Read a five-star review in the Oxford Times.
